uufilter - decode uuencoded files to stdout
] [-l] [-s] [-v] [infilename
is a "smart" uuencoded file decoder that can optionally
dump the file to stdout.
If no filename is supplied, input is read from stdin.
Uufilter automatically ignores lines that do not appear to be
part of the uuencoded file. This is particularly useful in uudecoding
files that have been concatenated from several email or news postings
without stripping off the headers or otherwise editing extraneous
- -f filename
Dump output to filename rather than the name specified in the
Lenient mode. This is useful if passed through a mailer that adds
Dump output to stdout rather than to the filename indicated in the
Verbose mode; talks about what's going on.
